How we practice sustainability

The issue of sustainability has been firmly anchored at the core of the Deka Group in our business strategy since 2015. From human resources management and human rights to compliance, we place great importance on having sustainable standards in place throughout our corporate management. In addition, there is the area of products: Sustainability is a fundamental issue here, too. We have clear principles that provide the framework for our funds and financing.

To ensure sustainable banking operations, we have introduced an environmental management system certified to DIN EN ISO 14001 for the entire Deka Group. This is also reflected in the ratings we receive from the sustainability rating agencies: Deka is rated above average – and is constantly improving.

2019 marks the end of a decade in which sustainability has become one of the central themes of our time. In particular, climate change, whose effects, including the economic impact, are becoming increasingly visible, has brought the question of how we can shape a future worth living into the centre of our society.

This is how we practice social responsibility:
